Software: EphPod beta v1.22 Released

“EphPod is a program designed to make your iPod work with Windows.  You will needa program to let you read Mac drives through Windows for EphPod to work properly. Currently, we recommend MacOpener.  It has a free trial, so you can try it before you have to pay for it.:”

New changes and fixes in beta v1.22:

  • Keeps track of files not added
  • New Copy Routines - Should stop lockups after transferring tons of files
  • Stupid Bug with Batch-Editing fix (Now the F3-F5 batch editing should work)
  • High-Ascii characters in ID3 tags were screwing things up, so I’m stripping them now
  • Periods in filenames seemed to screw things up, so I’m stripping them now
